When will the game be available?
When it’s ready. 🙂
I’m reluctant to post a target date due to the risk of disappointing people if it’s missed.
What platforms will it be available on?
Initially as a desktop game for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Will it have multiplayer?
The focus is currently creating a fantastic single player experience. Multiplayer is a major feature and is not targeted for the initial release. That said, I have quite a bit of experience in multiplayer development, so if there is sufficient demand, it can happen.
I remember having fun playing the Flash game Starcom. What’s the connection?
Starcom (the Flash game) was one of the first games I made. While short, it turned out to be quite popular, with over 2 million plays worldwide. Starcom: Nexus is not exactly a sequel, but will feature some of the same elements and have familiar combat mechanics. It will also be a much deeper game with more RPG elements, exploration and story.
I read somewhere this was being made in the Unity engine. Doesn’t that mean no Linux?
Unity 4 now supports desktop play on Linux.
Will it be available on Steam?
